You Are Mine by: Janeal Falor
Release Date: May 6, 2013
Genre: YA
Self Published
Book Description:

Serena knows a few simple things. She will always be owned by a warlock. She will never have freedom. She will always do what her warlock wishes, regardless of how inane, frivolous, or cruel it is. And if she doesn’t follow the rules, she will be tarnished. Spelled to be bald, inked, and barren for the rest of her life—worth less than the shadow she casts.
Then her ownership is won by a barbarian from another country. With the uncertainty that comes from belonging to a new warlock, Serena questions if being tarnished is really worse than being owned by a barbarian, and tempts fate by breaking the rules. When he looks the other way instead of punishing her, she discovers a new world. The more she ventures into the forbidden, the more she learns of love and a freedom just out of reach. Serena longs for both. But in a society where women are only ever property, hoping for more could be deadly.

So Lets Talk Cover:
So today is the official date of the cover reveal for You Are Mine and let me just say that it is beautiful. It is simple but sometimes simple can be enough which is the case with the cover of You Are Mine. I feel like the model captures the essence of Serena wonderfully. I’d say that my only complaint with the cover as random as this sounds are her eyelashes because you know their falsies and they look false. Aside from that the girl is beautiful, she matches the character description and honestly what more can you ask for?

My Review:
You Are Mine was EPIC! I was sucked into this book from the start and had a difficult time putting it down. There were nights when I found myself up at 4am reading because I just couldn’t set the book aside. This is by far one of my favorite YA books I have EVER read. The story was new and creative. I never knew what was going to happen next and not once did I think, “This book reminds me of..”
I am so so thrilled that I was given the opportunity to read and review this book. I highly recommend You Are Mine to anyone who wants to try something new and refreshing. I loved watching Serena go back and forth with her internal struggles. There were times when I had to fight back my tears and the emotion that this book drew from me made me feel so connected to what was going on as if I was actually there. You Are Mine should be on everyones to-read list and I cannot wait to see what Janeal Falor comes up with next.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. Yes it was just that good. We all know that to get a 5 Star rating from Coffee and Characters I have to want to re-read the book over and over again and let me tell you.. I so completely and utterly do! You Are Mine is just that GOOD!
